Les Petits Perdrix
Chateau Grinou- 2014
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Named after the young partridges that are often spotted amongst the wild flowers in their vineyards. Immediately fresh, pure and ripe the distinctive cassis and capsicum hallmarks of the Cabernet grape are much to the fore. The Merlot adds a hint of blackberry plumpness. A hugely enjoyable red Vin de France from the south west of the country that is similar in style to a good Bergerac (its near neighbour) but much more affordable. The excellent length of flavour belies its modest price tag.
